The City Wing Thing pizza (topped with piles of smoked turkey, cherry peppers, smoked Gouda, mozzarella and roasted garlic) came out a winner in Guy's book.

This was the episode where Guy Fieri visited the restaurant with Kid Rock
Owner, Curt Catallo, transformed an old church into a comfort food diner that is now known as THE SPOT for mac and cheese.
Kid Rock and Guy Fieri dug into a bowl of creamy mac and cheese, calling it the "most macked mac & cheese."
It's also a great spot to grab a cold beer.
Address: 511 W Canfield St, Detroit, MI 48201
The cool thing about Traffic Jam and Snug is their dedication to making everything fresh and in house. It's a dream restaurant! Their menu changes seasonally to reflect the seasonal best from local farms and markets. They have a ton of vegetarian, vegan, fish, meat and poultry options. Plus some great desserts!
What did Guy eat? The hot-sauce jelly beans in the pork loin kamatsu salad! Locals also enjoy the huge braised-beef panini sandwich made with their fresh baked bread.
